Following the peaceful legislative elections in Guinea on 28 September 2013, which were the last step on the roadmap established by the Council following the military coup on 23 December 2008, the EU Council decided on 12 December 2013 that the conditions had been met for cooperation under the 10th European Development Fund (EDF) to resume.

The arms embargo, adopted at the same time, was lifted in April 2014 and regular dialogue under Article 8 of the Cotonou Agreement began in 2014. The individual sanctions adopted by the EU in response to the violent repression of a peaceful demonstration in September 2009 remain in place.

The Commission released nearly EUR 140 million to support government efforts to promote good governance (reforms in the financial, justice and security sectors) and human rights, and improve the road infrastructure. This funding is in addition to the EUR 34.4 million released in December 2012 for basic social services, and the EUR 40m in emergency aid paid to Guinea since 2010, to help its transition to democracy.

Under the 11th EDF, the EU is working with Guinea to define the priorities for the next 2014-2020 period in the National Indicative Programme, relating to the following areas of cooperation: 

  • Consolidation of the Rule of Law and the promotion of an effective administration serving citizens and development.
  • Urban sanitation.
  • Health.
